Ophthalmology

The vision constitutes the basis of human communication. Although there are great achievements in the field of ophthalmology, vision problems such as cataract and refractive abnormalities are still liable to research and development.

Cyclooxygenase inhibitors (prostaglandin biosynthesis) are marketed as oculars for ocular use to inhibit intraoperative nerve (prostaglandin etiology due to mechanical iris irritation) in cataract and vitrectomy operations. Secondarily they may be administered in mild anterior uveitis or in contraindication of local corticosteroids, LASER in the anterior half, postoperatively in a cataract, or in inflammation following injury.

Prostaglandin inhibitors mainly use diclofenac, ketorolac, flurviprofen and pranoprofen.
